Finding Hubpages

An endless computer seach led me here.
An endless computer seach led me here.

I joined Hubpages about two weeks ago. I am recently unemployed and was looking online to make money from home until I found another job. Silly me! I soon realized that there were more people out there that were willing to take advantage of you instead of help you. During one of my many searches I found a link for Hubpages and clicked on it. I read what the site was about and was immediately intrigued.

If you love to write, then you will like this site. The site is about writing. You can sign up and publish your work online for other people to read and enjoy. You can gain followers and follow other writers. There are contests that you can participate in, as well as a forum for member discussions.

Writing sets me free
Writing sets me free

You can write about whatever you would like. Many people write poems or short stories. Others use it as a blog to voice opinions and review products or services. Some people use it as a way to share their lives with others. You can get feedback for your work through other user comments and comment on other people's writing.

Some people even do it to make a few extra dollars.

Yes, you can make money off of Hubpages and No, you will not make a million dollars overnight or even in a few months. There are a few ways that this can be done, all of them require effort on the part of the writer. No method is guaranteed income and Hubpages should not be used solely to make money. There are a few authors who have written great hubs about making money on Hubpages and know a lot more about it than I do. Check them out if you are interested.

I published my first hub the same day that I joined and have tried to publish one each day since, although it doesn't always work out that way. I write about what I know. I write about what I like. I don't do it with the intention of making money, although that would be a nice bonus! I do it to share with the world.

Recently, I was notified that one of my hubs was nominated for a Hubnugget. The title of the Hub is: Marriage Takes Elbow Grease, and was one out of eighteen nominators in three categories. At this point I am unsure if I won, but the honor to even be nominated is great. The nominations are only given to Hubbers that have been a part of the site for less than three months and it is a great way to promote yourself and your writing. Click the link to find out more.

Hubpages is full of knowledgeable, helpful people that always welcome new writers. A great way to get started is to sign up and jump on the forums and introduce yourself. Have a great time, write the things you write, learn from other people. I have gained so much new knowledge from reading other people's work. I am even trying to tips and techniques for myself. There is something for every niche in life. I have never been part of such an unique community of online people. And the best part is it is a great place to be yourself.
